For me, my social life after hours is not usually connected to my working life. Most of my social time is as far from the work as I can get, as there is a greater client base outside than inside the field. I try to balance it out so that my life with or without colleagues afterhours maintains all friendships.

A social life outside architecture does exist and it bodes well for any of us to take advantage in being as diverse in friendships as possible and to experience all walks of life, as that is where your next project will most likely come.

However, one of my most lasting friendships in the field of architecture has come from my classmates at the University, that I have managed to stay in touch with over the years, more so than with those I am in contact with in the profession. It will all depend on the individual.

Finally and perhaps most important, your friends are also part of your environment - a very large part. Architecture is nothing without people; when all is said and done, architecture and the physical environment that it creates are for people...and this should never be diverse and seek out as many avenues as possible inside and out of the profession.
